    querying a book translated to English

    Discussion in 'Publishing' started by dnlichter, Aug 13, 2019.

    Hi, my name is Daniel Lichter I am a comic book artist and I wrote and draw a nonfiction graphic novel for middle graders.

    I bet you can tell that English isn't my mother tongue and I wrote my book originally in a different language. Now I am thinking of sending it to a professional translator.

    Do you think an agent will be less consider representation a book if it wasn't written in English originally but was translated from a different language?

    Thank you,

    Daniel

    Depends on how well it is translated would be my guess
